The Infinite Retina: Spatial Computing (Packt Publishing)
Friday, 29 May 2020

In this book, authors Irena Cronin and Robert Scoble attempt to answer the question "What is Spatial Computing and why is everyone from Tesla, Apple, and Facebook investing heavily in it?" They describe spatial computing as an augmented reality where humans and machines can interact in a physical space, along with where it came from, where it's going, and why it's so fundamentally different. They present seven visions of the future and the industry verticals in which Spatial Computing has the most influence - Transportation; Technology, Media, and Telecommunications; Manufacturing; Retail; Healthcare; Finance; and Education.
